It is surprising what a liberal fund of ex cuses people of the world are able to draw upon at sight, for doing what is agreeably to them ! At a fashionable watering place, such, as Baden just now, and Bath hall a century Zt everybody contrives te be afflicted with tiie disorder for which the waters are a fpeci fls ; and not a squire's lady, who grows weary "of her country seat, but suffers severely from delicacy of the lungs, and is ordered for the winter to the south . of France and its tee, or Brighton and its cutting breezes. Flirting mammas find it necessary to repair to Paris fur the education of their daughters; while porting papas consider it expedient to aihere to the covers and preserves of their country seat, in order to keep up electioneering in terests for their son. t A house to which I occasionally repair for an evening's amusements, afford me a most amusing study to the hypocrisies of human nature. The proprietor has the honor to, what is termed, " enjoy " a very indifferent reputa tion. No matter to my readers, the origin of the scandal ; whether he be a maker of cards or hoaxer of the stock exchange whether a seducer of other men's wives, or conniver at the seduction of his own signifies not a jot. lie is ill thought off in the world. Not a soul in society, but has heard things laid to his charge, the charge of which ought to lay him on the shelf. Nevertheless, his courage is un daunted. Either he despises the ill report of his fellow-creatures, or chooses to out-face it. Mondor (so let us call Lim) is rich; gives din ners, balls, concerts dejeuneet, and fe'-cs of ev ery description ; and people of alTdeecriptions attend his dejeunees, concerts, balls, and din ners. But, instead of saying with a degree of audacity equal to his own, ' I go there because it suits me because I find amusement" every species and variety of specious lie is adopted as an excuse for the indecorum of the measure. " Are you going to Mondor's ball U-night ? ' aid I the other evening to Lord A, at a party where we chanced to encounter. . " I go there I" replied his Lordship, affect ing a look of indignant amazement, because he fancied he could discover in my inquiry a tone of disapproval which guaranteed my absence. Yet the first person I beheld on entering Mondor's sumptuous house, was the Earl of A-s . -., "Are you going to Mondor's?" I had after wards inquired of Miss B., a pretty girl stand ing near us. "I fancy so," she replied. "Mondor was formerly under great obligations to ray father, and mamma thinks it would look as though we presumed upon bis situation if we constantly declined his invitations. Shall I meet you there?" continued the young lady, turning to young Quickset of the Guards. " I am afraid so. The fellow is rather strong in our county; and my cousin John means to stand the next vacancy." " I am surprised to find that Mrs. B., with so many daughters to marry, should take them to Mondor's," observed Lady Queenhithe, who was of the party. 1 take Laura there now and then, because, as ao onlvvhild. with he fortune, beauty and accomplishments, it mat ters littln wht.ro aha in on ..w. V UUW .U BWU. " If I had even one daughter, I would not go there," observed Lady CuUndshuffle, to whom she was addressine herself. "But as I am sure of my rubber there, and at my age ucn tniogs are immaterial, 1 seldom miss the m&ni parties." "O, ne!" ejaculated Lady Superfine, "It is oil 7kir 1 I I . T . . 1, ! J 1. 1 1 jr urujg dtou nil ma grauu uaiis, where all the test of the world is seen also ; but to be an habitue of such a house a man of such very infamous character 1" " What right have we to trouble ourselves with the mote in our brother's eye? because we aro virtuous, shall there-be no more cakes and ale?" cried Major CKielly, a man who has been bowed out of two regiments and half a dozen London dra win grooms. "'Pon my s Jul and honor, Mondor is a deuced good fel low ; and I consider it my duty, as a gentle man, to keep him in countenance." " One does not go to keep him in counten ance exactly," lisped a' young gentleman, lan guishing through a near-sighted glass. " But that exquisite gallery 1 one cannot refuse on e . self a sight now and then cf his admirable Guido." "As far as reputation signifies," observed one of his lounging companions, "certainly no man ever lost himself more completely than Mondor. But he gives us such capital music I Grisi, Rubini and-.Tamburini once a fortnight! I consider it every man's duty to patronize so liberal a patron of the arts." "Patron of a pack of lazy fiddlers 1" cried old Drusus. "If that were all, no respectable man would lose himself by being seen in such company. But look at Mondor's public chari ties! Twenty guineas annually to the Mendi city Society; twenty to the Opthalmic Hospi tal (though, by the way, it might be all the worse for him if the world were able to see clear;) twenty to the deaf and dumb (a word to the wise;) twenty to St. George's Hospital; ten to the Houseless Poor; and five to the Small Debts; besides figuring in all the lists of to-the-bumane-whom-heaven has-blessed-with-affluence advertisements, from one year's end to the other. Such a man is a most desirable acquaintance the sort of person for whom one is always looking out." "I do not pretend to be a licensed dealer in charity-mongering," observed Sir George Shelfham, with a sneer. " The poor-laws take care of the poor, and we take care of the poor laws. But when was Mondor ever behind hand when the prospectus of a work ef merit was placed in his hands? He has obliged me by taking shares in several new periodicals, which might have survived to become old had the public been as liberal as himself ; and sub scribed to I knew not how many standard clas sical works, which, could the subscriptions fill, may, perhaps, one day or other see the light. Rising genius has a splendid patron in Mon dor. Last year he was very near Siting out an expedition for TJlick O'Flannaghan's pro jected voyage of discovery to the Antarctic re gions; and, enrre nous, has advanced many hundreds towards the scheme. To be sure, nothing can be more disagreeable than to have such a man come up and accost one in the street. But certain sacrifices are due to the advancement of letters and the cause of science. I never miss one of Mondor's literary dinners, and am thereforo bound to attend his ball." "CAaeunason goutl'' cried Col. Martinet, shrugging his shoulders, "should expect to be poisoned at his table?. n.l .1 u Tke young Duchess has no such appre hension," said I. " I met her there at dinner last week." "The Duchess dine at Mandor's! " u 1'had the honor of sitting next her." "You amaze me! I thought nothing but the worst company frequented his house?" ' Do you call the Marchioness of Aylsham and her daughters bad company? " . " And they visit him? Is it possible ! Could you get me a card for bis next fete T I always make it a point to meet the Aylshams when I nave an opportunity. Perhaps you cculd take me there to-night?" " Let us inquire of Lady Lindo whether the Aylshams are at the ball. See she is just en tering the room with her daughters. Are you come from Mondor's? are there many people there ! " said I, addressing her Ladyship, in a natural tone.- ; ' , 44 Hush, hush ! not a word ! pray don't speak - o load 1 I would not let Lady Marmozet suspect I had been there for the world. She . would whisper it all over the town, and it might be a great injury to the girls in a cer- But why did you take them there then ?'

However, I teokcaretobe there early.- People tried to persude me that I ought to come here early, and go there afterwards. 1 But, "of 'course, at ruck a house, I did net choose to be seen by all the world. So, as soon as the room began to fill, I came away ; and having arrived here thus early, no one will be able to prove that we were there at at all.

" In such a house as this,' it docs not do to put oneself en evidence in the ball-room." "Stay supper, indeed! Ob, dear, no!" cried Mrs. Peachick. " It would by no means suit my views ol" propriety to be seen supping at Mondor 8. " Heyday ! you here ?" exclaimed another. "Well, I am amazed! I always fancied you one of the precise people.

To correct a state ment made in your valuable paper of the 7th ipst., to the effect that this post was about to oe evacuated, l take the liberty of furnishing you the following facts: Shortly after the moving of the depots of supplies for the army of the Potomac from the Pamunkey, it was deemed advisable to concentrate all the forces in this vicinity. . For this purpose orders were issued to evacuate Gloucester Point and destroy such material as would not pay for re moving. This order was executed, and all the funs on the fortifications of that place were lown up. This, no doudt, gave rise to the statement ol your correspondent that this place was also to be evacuated.
